Originally eclipsing the nearby Appleton settlement because of its proximity to the Rock Island Rail line, Minneola now benefits from being at the intersection of U.S. Routes 54 and U.S. Route 283. The Minneola Co-op's grain elevator stands sentinel at the north edge of town along the rail line and is visible for miles around. Most businesses are focused on agricultural needs in this farming and ranching community. The Minneola Record, founded in 1906, is believed to have been the oldest continuously operating business in the town.
